I just bought a Microsoft Surface pro 3 256 Gb i7.

had to figure out some video settings, but it works totaly fine. Thanks to the pen, you can actually see the small buttons, even if they are quite small. I would prefer a lesser resolution, so that a few buttons get bigger. I would not use the Surface to PvP.

On best grafik settings, i get a fps of 20, boosting up to 35 if need be thanks to the prossesor turbo. Even so, let me say that eve did not feel fragmentet at fps 20, since it only dropped to save power when sitting at one spot/station. On low settings i get an easy 60 fps sec.

So Eve on surface works fine, but i would not recomend it to pvp. By the way, it feels genius to just control all of eve with a pen.


One last thing, while moving a window (f.eks. inventory) the window follows quite slowly for some reason. Radial options also don't show up on icons of the overview.

Please feel free to ask questions, i will then check them out on my surface and come back to you.

Best regards

I didn't notice that it was locked before i sent it in. I will let the stand here, so that there is actually some information regarding EVE on a surface pro 3 i7

Thanks for the post. I've been considering one myself. Not primarily for Eve, but it's always nice to know how well it runs on it :)

Could you tell us with Surface Pro 3 you got, specifically the processor speed?


Edit: I see the i7.. that one is the most expensive SKU, isn't it? ($2k from what I remember.. ouch)

I have a TRS-80 with a cassette tape drive.

EVE is a game about spaceships and there's an enormous amount of work to do on the in-space gameplay before players (or developers) are ready to sacrifice it for a totally new type of gameplay - CCP Rise

this and having the ability to eveHQ in bed, are huge selling points. :]

Tell you what I do like though: A killer. A dyed-in-the-wool killer. Cold-blooded, clean, methodical and thorough.

what's the tablet gargant uses in the AT? he refers to it a lot, and I have a feeling he has EVE running on it.

I think I'm waiting for an EVE capable tablet in the $350-$450 range, before making that purchase for the convenience.

You're so angry and hostile all the time for no reason. Go have some bacon. Bacon solves everything.

Just because it's MS buying a surface rubs me the wrong way.

Does anyone know if Eve run on an iPad?

Edit: I see it's the fancy one for 2k... Way too much for my budget. I would hope for that price is would run Eve perfectly...

All I know is, I have a perfectly functional custom PC and two year old laptop. Together, they serve all my needs, and I'm not buying hardware just for the sake of doing what everyone else is doing. I am cool enough without owning a tablet tyvm.

Same here except for a year old laptop and a desktop that's about 5 years old. I would like to have something more portable than my Asus 17" G75.

still the pro1 pro2, and cheaper versions of the pro3. Eve runs on all of them. and I don't even know how many third party ones that can.

I feel like eve almost works on a touch screen. Although the client doesn't expect touch at all it becomes unpredictable when you use touch. I would think pve and most in station activities would work pretty well.

Oh shoot, my desktop is 5 years old or so. I've just managed to upgrade almost everything in that time span Shocked

and I didn't have a laptop for a few years, so fancy tablet seemed like it would be a decent idea. Kinda wish I waited for the pro3, but I've used my pro 1 a ton. Can't wait to see what comes out in the next few years.

I have an E300 with cassette tape drive, but cannot seem to find any cassettes anymore. How do you solve that lack of cassettes?

In march my gaming notebook broke down. I was pondering the alternatives. In april I got my Toshiba z10-t with a Haswell i7. It's completely sufficient for what I usually do in EVE when not at home.

Next year I'm going to scrap my now 6 year old desktop and get me a new one for gaming. Goodbye gaming notebooks o7.

Remove standings and insurance.
